Did you know if you put the words ‘to’ and ‘do’ together, you get the Spanish word for ‘all’? It kind of makes a twisted sense, because you do hope to include all your plans on that measly scrap of paper.
Anyway, I was thinking I should really put some more non-interview content on here, especially considering that said interviews probably will – in the new year – have a new home elsewhere.
As usual, I just took inspiration off of a blog that is so consistently good I wish I wrote the entries. I’m speaking of Merrilee Faber’s blog, of course, and her recent entry about Project Diligent December (which she stole from somewhere else!).
Unlike Merrilee, I’m not a huge fan of the short story medium. I find it incredibly hard to write, and things always end up spiralling out of control. I only ever seem to have novel-sized ideas.
But I do write as if I were writing a short story – I break everything down into chapters, or scenes, and episodes as it were. So I have cheated and included a couple things on my list that aren’t quite short stories. Shush.
Yes, instead of actually writing, I procrastinated by making a to do list. Give me a break, I’m an INTJ; we love to do lists.
|The Dreamer||Literary||Short story||First draft|
|Sub rosa||Speculative||Short story||Outlined|
|DarkSight Ep. 01||Horror||Serial||1,900 / 2,500|
|DarkSight Ep. 02||Horror||Serial||Outlined|
|Untitled||Fantasy||Bonus story||First draft|
|Into the sea||Fantasy||Short story||Planning|
Errr… yes. Not a very long list, I know.
What writing projects are you working on?
